Anyone in Northeast effected by the warnings? If so, are you evacuating?

I live in New Hampshire and no i am not leaving. It is supposed to rain 1 to 2 inches of rain but that doesn't scare me one bit. The rain and the high winds are the warnings put out by NOAA.

Well, article I read said they're telling folks that if they don't evacuate, rescue workers will have to remove their bodies. That doesn't scare you smartenough?

It's pretty windy around here. They told us to check the news in the morning, to see if the schools are closed. One lady has been killed by a falling business sign. They expect maybe over $10 million in damages. And this is in Southern Ontario. The storm isn't even here yet. I'd hate to think about what it's like in New York.

I just read that a woman has been killed in Toronto by flying debris as a business sign came down in the wind. Man. Like I said, the storm isn't even here yet. :(

It does scare somewhat but then again Hurricane Irene was worse and I did not leave New Hampshire then either and I survived. But thank you for your concern.

I'm glad you're OK smartenough. I see what you mean now- their warnings are like the boy who cried wolf too many times. So they lack credibility now. :-)

Yes, I'm in Southern Ontario. The actual centre (Canadian spelling, LOL) of the storm is going to be over us in the morning, but the major damage happened overnight last night, while the thing was actually in New York and New Jersey. That's how big it is.

We have downed trees (some on cars and houses) and power lines, hanging traffic signs, 1 death when a lady was hit by a Staples sign that crashed down, some flooded storm drains as it has been raining here since late Friday. About 30,000 people are still without power. And this is all while the storm wasn't even here yet. Amazing.

Wow, that sounds quite horrific Rainfeather! I'm glad you're OK though.

Yeah, nothing happened in my neighbourhood, that I know of. Just a lot of shaken up trees and of course it ended our period of lovely golden leaves. They're all off the trees pretty much now.
